Anniversary & Mesa Temple Lights

Today is our 4 year anniversary.  I look back and realize how many fun things Mike and I have been able to do together in this amount of time.  I am so blessed to have found somebody so perfect for me.  Mike is always so sweet and understanding of me.  I love having every adventure in life together.  Being married to Mike is so easy and I couldn't ask or have hoped for anyone better.  Thanks for making me so happy Mikey!  I love you! 

Last night we drove to the Mesa temple to see the lights.  It was beautiful!  We had a fun time as a family even though we were stuck in traffic on the way down for too long.  It had been raining but it was so pretty and was well worth going.  It was the first time I felt like it is actually Christmas here.  We are excited to come to Utah and see some snow next week!

Air Force here we come!

So it is official.  We are now going to be property of the US Air Force for the next 7 years of our lives.  I have to say that I am so grateful for this.  Mike just found out that we got the 3 year Air Force scholarship.  Dental school is so much more expensive than I ever thought it would be.  Getting this Air Force scholarship means that all of our school bills are paid for and they will be giving us money to live off of each month.  There are always pros and cons to things like this but when they will eliminate $300,000 in student loans it is an easy decision.  We have talked to many people who have gone the military route and everyone seems to say that the Air Force is the way to go.  We feel so blessed and feel like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders.  Yah!!!
